Rock Island Independents

Rock Island Independents

The Rock Island Independents was one of the first professional American football teams, based in Rock Island, Illinois, in the National Football League from 1920 to 1925 and in the American Football League of 1926. They played in Douglas Park. Walter Flanigan was the owner of the team from 1915 to 1923. Then Dale Johnson took over and owned the team until 1926, when the team eventually folded.

Their best finish in the National Football League standings was fifth, which they accomplished three times: in 1921 and 1922 under Jimmy Conzelman, and in 1924 under Johnny Armstrong.
